Bioactive heterocyclic compound classes


Contributors mostly from chemical companies construct classes for pesticides that bear at least one heterocyle, and about 70% do. The classes, or families, have the same heterocyclic scaffold, the same mode of action, and a similar substitution pattern. Chapters discuss the most important members of the class, their historical background, chemical syntheses, biochemical modes of action, and biological activities. In sections on herbicides, fungicides, and insecticides, they examine such classes as triazine herbicides, imidazolinone herbicides, morpholine fungicides for treating powdery mildew, avermectin insecticides and acaricides, phenylpyrazole-containing fiprole insecticides, and pyrazolylpyridine activators of the insect ryanodine receptor.
